A suspenseful tale set in the Spanish Civil War. Max is begged to come back to the waning theater of confrontation between the leftists and Franco’s fascists to find a volunteer freedom fighter who has disappeared. Many famous people were involved in or eyewitnesses to the doomed struggle against Franco, including Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos. In this cosmopolitan mix looking for the cause du jour’, Friedman tries vainly to stay neutral in his search but is quickly thrown into a maelstrom of intrigue.

Text: English (translation)
Giardino's (A Jew in Communist Prague) newest Max Friedman spy adventure takes this reluctant spy, former soldier and successful businessman away from his comfortable home on the outskirts of Geneva into the thick of the Spanish Civil War in 1938. Friedman's old friend Maj. Guido Treves has disappeared while fighting with the anti-Franco Loyalists, and his wife implores Friedman to go to Spain and find him. Narrowly escaping an aerial bombing of his Barcelona-bound train, Friedman next faces a gunman's attempt on his life. As the International Brigades depart Spain, allowing Franco and his Nazi-Fascist allies to advance, Friedman is intent upon making the perilous journey to the front, where Treves was last seen. His inquiries about his missing friend arouse the suspicions of the local police, the Communist Party and Franco's spies. Giardino's characters tend toward rugged, brave men and beautiful, dark-haired women. Drawn in a stiff but realistic style originally made popular in Europe by the Belgian cartoonist Herge, his renderings of dark, war-ruined streets, art nouveau interiors and austere military offices, faithfully recreate wartime Barcelona. The next volume of No Pasar n! takes Friedman to the front, where the danger, intrigue and action can only increase.
